An intriguing book uite unlike any other of Modern Epub #181 The Marrow of Modern Divinity defies pigeon holing It was written in the s by an author of whom we know little yet it proved to be a critically important and controversial theological text Penned as dialogue The. Let’s face it covenant theology isn’t exactly the easiest thing to figure out There are always those nagging uestions For example Was Israel really in some sort of ‘covenant of works’ What is the exact difference between the ‘law’ and the ‘gospel’ Where do works come into the euation of our salvationThese and many other issues are intuitively addressed and ingenuously explained in this masterful volume of 17th century English theology This is both a work of art and a work of theology The author Edward Fisher has drawn form a broad spectrum of reformed divinity on covenant theology and then translated it as it were into very laymen’s terms This is both church history and biblical exegesis wrapped into engaging dialogues between four characters “Evangelista” “Antinomista” “Nomista” and “Neophytus” The following is an excerpt having to do with man's Natural Bias Towards the Covenant of WorksAlas there are thousands in the world that make a Christ of their works; and here is their undoing c They look for righteousness and acceptation in the precept than in the promise in the law than the gospel in working than in believing; and so miscarry Many poor ignorant souls amongst us when we bid them obey and do duties they can think of nothing but working themselves to life; when they are troubled they must lick themselves whole when wounded they must run to the salve of duties and stream of performances and neglect Christ Nay it is to be feared that there be divers many who in words are able to distinguish between the law and gospel and in their judgments hold and maintain that man is justified by faith without the works of the law; and yet in effect and practice that is to say in heart and conscience do otherwise And there is some touch of this in us all; otherwise we should not be so up and down in our comforts and believing as we are still and cast down with every weakness as we areSinclair Ferguson says of this bookAnyone who comes to grips with the issues raised in the Marrow of Modern Divinity will almost certainly grow by leaps and bounds in understanding three things the grace of God the Christian life and the very nature of the gospel itself I personally owe it a huge debtNeed I say “Pick up and read” my friend Pick up and read

The Marrow of Modern DivinityMarrow Epubbetween a ministerEvangelista a young ChristianNeophytus a legalistNomista who believes Christianity is a set of rules to be obeyed and Antinomista who thinks it's okay to sin because God will forgive him anyway it makes for a wonderfully insightful book that. I don't feel I am ualified to review such a book I will however give a bit of my thoughts on it I appreciate Fisher's conversations to explain the believer's relationship to the Law and the distinction between Law and Gospel Also the exposition of the ten commandments is as good as our catechism in what the Law reuires of man Boston's notes though sometimes a bit difficult to follow in jumping between Boston's notes and Fisher's book are helpful and could be a book on their ownI also enjoy how significant this book has been in history The story before and the testimony in the appendix help to place the book in its historical context as well as to explain the significance One thing I would like to see though is a modern language version as sometimes the 1600s English or Boston's 1700s English is difficult to understand I think it would make the book approachable and perhaps help many Finally having chosen this book based on Dr R Scott Clark's recommendation and summary on the Heidelcast I can see how this serves to stand against and correct the errors of the Federal Vision and others who would try to bring in Romish doctrines In the responses to the uestioning in the appendix one can see how the Scottish Presbyterian Church was dealing with similar error I hope this reprint will be used of God to continue to Reform the Church
